Hern' 14 Another example, of thr- In
tcrnperatp "Irmperancp" of prohlhl
tionlsti: A profcsFor In nni of our
imlvprrltlM accepted nn Invitation to
speak nt n "temperance" rally In n
chtireh. In the- roiirm nf Ills re
innrkR hci referred In Inn miracle tit
Cann, nml expressed himself Hum:
"I have i?!Von this maltpr profound
tliniiKlit, hml I wlili lo nay In ynu
t lint I liavp. reached Iho rnnrliinlou
Hint when ChflHt turned Hint wa
ter Into wIiip, lid did wlint wnn
wrntiB." Wind passion, wild fanat
icism ni.il littler lulolernnro nic llw
chief characteristics nf Iho wholn
prohibition movement, It must ho
nppnicnl lo every Ratio nnd renson
nliln mind I hat Iho sooner Ibis mis
called "tempernnre" crusade In
burled out of alistit nnd forRiitlon,
tho sonnor Iho way will bo rloarcd
for Kenulnn temperance, rofpnn.
"Inally, prohibition must lie run-
dPmtiPil. tint only because It lias
fnllPd lo accomplish nny good, tuil
only lipcattiio li hlockH the, way lo
real reform, lint because It Is Itself
llm Rourcn of many sojlal nnd polll
tf.il evils. These mils nro briefly
Mi'ininrlrcil ns fnllowH!
I. Prohibitory legislation lias
l - or succeeded In abolishing Iho
I.., nor trafllc, but It bus succeeded
In degrading nnd doninrnllzltiK I'm
Unfile by drlvltift It Into sorrel
plncis. Tim lliiunr taws In most of
the Mntes prohibit Iho nun or shades
In saloon windows and screens In
front of the bar. This wise provl
ftlon In bnRcd on tho entnmnn cxperl
euro Hint Iho liquor buslnc-SH Ir 'of
Riieh n nature Hint It Ih far more
Jlljely to do bnrm vhon It Ii rnrrled
on under rover than whnn It Is open
and aboyo board. Now prohibition
forces Iho liquor traffic, lo secrole
ItKolf. not merely behind n wrecn,
hut behlt.d n barrleaded door. Tho
door I" Quickly opened for those Hint
Knovy the password, hut shut nsnlnRt
the omccrs of thn law, The only
practical question mat confronts us
la whether wo Rhall permit the liq
uor trnlllc lo be carried on openly
under the BUiicrvllon and control ot
tho law, or whether wo shall drlvp
It Into places whero the nrm of the
law can not reneh It. License means
the open barroom, prohibiticn means
the "speak easy.'1 Which of tho two
Klndg Is Hie more likely to harbor
evils nnd encourage Intemperance?,
2. If there Is nny one business
more than another that. In tho In
tecest of the public, ought to bo in
tho hands of men with conscience
and moral principle, (t Is the liquor
business. A proper kind of license
law can do considerable toward Im
proving the personnel of the trade,
Prohibition, on the other hand, dis
courages decent, honorable men from
engngli.g -In tho business, nml thus
tlnowH It Into thu hands of Hie moxt
unscrupulous and Irresponsible men
In tho community. The only quali
fication required to do business un
der prohibition Is tho nullity to beat
the law without getting caught. A
couple of ears ngo, In a ccitalti
town on Long Island, one of tho best
hotels- had to close Its doors shortly
after tho "dry" law went Into effect.
The proprietor of this nolo! was one
ot tho most honored nion In the com
munity. Prohibition did succeed In
closing this man's bar and driving
him out of tho hotel business as
well, nnd It closed other decent
places. Hut what was tho, result?
Why, within two years between fifty
and hlikly "Mtilien saloons" were
established In this satno town. It
Is n well-known fact Hint most ot
tho men that run these "speak
eustes" In a "dry" lown aro thor
oughly satisfied with prohibition. A
license law would put them out of
business. Again, the only question
is. shall to cnoournga nnd protect
tho decent liquor dealer, or shall
wo encourage, tho othor kind? Ono
kind or the other we are absolute
ly sure to have.
3. Prohibition has n bad effect
also on thn drinker. It lends to
dlsumrago tho uo of tho lighter nl
rohollo beverages nnd to encourago
tho extorsive ubu ot the stronger
liquors. This tendency Is especially
pioiinuurcd wherever tho attempt is
made to enforce tho law rigorously.
Deterioration In the quality ot liq
uor Is another rmu of tho "bless
ings" introduced by prohibition. The
men who run tho "speak casl'es"
often make their own "whisky." ann
you can imagine the nature of tho
"blend." A few jears ago, whan tho
town In whltl tho writes lives was
"dry," a confirmed inebriate who
lived in nn adjoining "wet" town got
In the habit of Waiting this "dry"
town about onco a fortnight. IIo
was always sqber when he arrived
and druuk when ho left. Ho was
ones asked why he came from n
"wet" town to a "dry" towu to gel
liquor, and his answer was: "lle
cnuso I can got n quicker nnd qhcapi
er Jag on. n JUverhcad than I can
In .," This, Is the way prohli
bllloii refprms the drunknid! It Is
often claimed that while prohibition
docs not nltospthcr prohibit, It uooa
succeed irt rPducing the consumption
of liquor. Thla claim Is not baaed on
fact, Hut oven If It bo true that less
Ijqtinr h dttink In n eUen community
under prohibition than under thp ll-l
ccnBP system, Iho nil Important qups-j
lion, from Iho point of Wew of iniv'
pcranco reform Is, what claii of peo-'
pip mo Ihus affected? Who arn the'
men tha.t either ennnoj gel nn.uhlug to
dilnk or cannot get nn much as ihpy
would under license. Now, pmliody
who Is not lUIng In n land of drranis.i
knows perfectly well tint the ery
men In every fommunll) uho most
noril reforming nrp thu nnps that nro
least Inconvenienced by tho prohibi
tory law. Tlfoy inn l)ui first ones to
learn tho location of pery "speak'
easy" In Iho plncp. Hut, If prohibition
cannot reform, this elass, inn it not
iti least keep tcniptfttlou out of Ihol
way or tiie young; .now, i no irittii is
that nil this talk nlinqt "piolectlng our,
boys" is sheer twaddle. Tho protec
tion Is n myth. Prohibition really
creates Iho most dangerous Mud of
temptation that which Is hidden, hut
known. Hv-pry young matt Hint is nt
all liable In bo led nstiay under tho
llcenso Hstrm, Is far tump llablo to
gn nstiay under n nyHteni that rncnur
iiroh secret drinking. Who wouldn't
rather hnvo his hoii go Into an open
saloon and get n glass of beer than In
hnvo him Join his rompaulous In Mime
bark-room rosprt? If there Is nny
class of young men In Hid community
that need tho protection of the law,
liny nrp certalnjy 'not tho ones that
frequent lliq W, b. T. U. prnPr meet
ing when thn ton is "dr,y" While
thn good women aro pra)Iug and
thanking ihp Lord for the greit bhs
Ing of prohibition, thejio )oung fel
lows nro probably "protecting" them
selv.es In Iho "clidi" room nt thp far
end ff Fomo nlley. t
A, Prohibition creates widespread
ami habitual law-brcaklng. Consider
tho number of primes that nro com
nutted every hour of tho day In n
"dry" Rtnto. And consider thp ia
moral effect of this habit of law-break
Ing on tho chic Ufa.'' It creates tho
Bpltlt of lawlcssncsR. It tends to
weaken and break down that respeqt
for tho principle of law nniy order
which Is so cssontlal to good cltUen
ship. The following story; shows how
oven good men nro unconsciously af
fected by tills baneful inlluoncq: Some
years ago a clergyman wen to n cer
tain summer tesort In KuvrflUrnpshlru
to spend his vacation. On nrrhing In
tho town, ho went to the lending hotel.
While wnltlng In thn office for Hip sup
per bell, he happened tn.opcn a door,
and found, In tho next room, a well
appointed bar. Tho proprietor was in
this room, nnd thu clergyman, point
ing lo tho bar, R.id, "Why, Mr. ,
how Is this?" "How's what?" answer
ed H'O proprietor. "Why, jou haen
bar hem, and )oi aro evidently open
for business." Tho hotel man looked
puzzled ami said: "Of course 1 hnvo
u bar. Couldn't )ou get what ou
wanted?" "Oh, I didn't wish any
thing," answered tho minister, "but I
wondered bow )ou iiuild run an open
bar In u prohibition town." Tho ge
nial host jelt jclluvcd when he found
that his guest was not complaining
aliout tho sorcp. "WcllJ well," he
said, "I didn't understand what jou
meant, Why, that's easy. I'l tel( you
how wo work'lt up here. You see, I
was high Bhcr)ff of this county last
term, and, while I disllko to blow my
own hoi n, 1 want to toll jou that I
did whnt very few men in this county
w quid hnvo done. Kvury three months
I raided my owp bar nnd hid myself
fined. As ho finished this sentence,
there, was n look of gonulno pi Ida In
tho cx-shcrllt's face. Hq seemed to bo
blissfully unconscious that there, was
anything wrpug about violating tlic
law. This story was told to tho writ
ter by the IloV. 13. A. Wnssoon, of
Kcwurk, N. J., who was hlmscU Iho
clergyman that bad this conversation
with tho hotel matt.
Here Is another story whlLh shows
tho effect pf .prohibition ns a brooder
of rank hypocrisy. About four years
ago, shoitly after a certain town on
Long island went "dry," a hoto) ke?p
cr In this town receded a letter from
a. whplcsala whisky concern In Ken
lucky, tending something llko this;
"Will jou kindly send us "tho nnnios
ot any persons in your town who, you
hlnk, might bo .likely to puicpaBp wet
goods. Wo hnvo a very fine braml'nf
whisky (naming tho brand) that we
Bhould like ,lo Introduce; Imvour town,
Wo filuill bo glad to extend to ,yon
thq usual courtesy of ten percent, com
mission on all sales that wo tpiiy mako
through tho list jou send ns' Well,
tho hotel man thought ho would havq
a llttlo fun, nnd so ho made, a list of
about, thlrty-flvo of tho most rad
prohibitionists in tho place, and sent
Hip list to tho whisky firm. UJu
thought It wojild lo a lino Joko on tho
prohlbltlonlslH to hnyo them deluged
with whisky circulars. And It turned
out to bo it better Jokp than bo
thought. Tnr, nt tbej 0d ftlireq
months, he received n letter from Iho
vvhlsky pcoplo thanking blm for what
